Year 12 students have completed the first part of their Theory of Knowledge assessment. This involved each student exhibiting 3 objects which help form an answer to a knowledge question. These are open questions such as What counts as good evidence for a claim?, How does the way that we organize or classify knowledge affect what we know?, Should some knowledge not be sought on ethical grounds? , Are some things unknowable?
Students are required to consider these questions with reference to key concepts such as evidence, certainty, truth, bias, and persepectives The students brought in an impressive range of objects such as a skeleton, a guitar, a crucifix, and many more, as they each explored their chosen knowledge question in unique ways.
We were also pleased to welcome the Pre-IB students to this event. They were able to interrogate the Year 12s on the exhibits and find out more about the Theory of Knowledge course. This will help in their preparations for the IB course.
